Tropical Storm Friday

Confusing stuff here. Weather guy on one channel at noon said high winds and 2-3 inches of rain. Weather guy on usual channel tonight says sustained high winds and 8-10 inches of rain!!?? So close, so far away. In any case it's going to be a real mess here Sunday.

Spare some Time for Claudia
Some people hate James Altucher and I think I know why. He challenges conventional thinking. He puts you in a state of unease with your long held beliefs. He also makes you think. I like him. A lot. James has written that his beloved wife Claudia has been diagnosed with Lyme disease so I would ask the readers to stop by and send some good feelings to Claudia and James:
Claudia Has Lyme Disease

Jackson Hole Post Mortem
It's Friday so I don't want to spend too much time on this. Bernanke had nothing to go with today, but used cryptic language about extending the September FED meeting to two days. The wording was "to fully explore all tools" or some stuff. Take home point:
QE3 of some sort WILL be announced at the September meeting.

Markets dropped at first on the release but then the magic words were found and a huge move ensued.

I will recap strategy going forward on Sunday (weather permitting), but it's safe to say the preternatural bid behind stocks will now return and there is going to be a huge run up before the September meeting. Bad data will only make things go higher as QE 3 is a done deal. Amazing stuff. Disgusting and sad, but amazing.

Friday Night Entertainment
Need a break after this week? You have come to the right place!

Apple is Worth More Than....
My man Joshua Brown thought up this great idea to discuss just how massive the Apple company truly is. With a market cap around 350 Billion dollars (wow!) you may be shocked to see just how much that is in comparison to other things.

What is super-duper exciting and very humbling is that Josh has allowed me administrative access to the site so I get to post ideas for the page! So awesome!! Please stop on over and take a look at the work so far:
Apple is Worth More Than....
Fortune Magazine's blog has already featured the site!! It's hard for me to explain how cool this is for me:
Apple is now worth more than ... the Great Wall of China
Let me know in the comments if you have a good one! Full credit will be given. Thanks Josh.

Film Clips
Scouring the files of my mind to bring you quality things to see.

An under rated film is "Midnight Run". Great actors, great pace, the film is wonderful. Check out this scene as the cash strapped duo pose as the FBI and steal cash:

The litmus configuration?

Found this really nice tribute video for "Gladiator" on YouTube. Check it out:

Not bad.

Rock Blogging
Hit the dial to 11, it's louder!

Reader Sovereign Bohemian was looking for some old Eagles tunes. What's smoother than "Tequila Sunrise"?:

Love that one.

Heard this one on the radio today, good stuff! A-Ha with "Take on Me":


Ok, I know I repeat but I love this song:


We need some Crue! "Kickstart My Heart":

GO!

Two songs left. Let's close the show.

For hurricane Irene lets hope people remember Irene Cara! "What a Feeling":

Nice.

Last call! Grab a girl, a drink, and some lighter fluid.

Going with Golden Earring and "Radar Love":


Have a good night.

I can predict the weather. It's going to change.

There, I said it. And just as I predicted Irene is weakening as she encounters the colder waters off the east coast. And when she hits land, she will dissipate.

You're likely to get some heavy rain and high winds. Maybe some trees blown down, a power outage or two, and, I don't know, two to six inches of rain. That's about it. I certainly wouldn't evacuate my home for fear of that.

The media is overhyping this storm, just like they overhype everything else. The only thing is that it's hitting the east coast, not the gulf coast.

Nice Friday post as usual GYSC. Cool that you can give Josh some ideas, too! Hope the storm isn't too bad up your way.
